Co-organised by: Art Promotion Office & Science Promotion Unit
Exclusively sponsored by: The Hong Kong Jockey Club
A Programme of: Art@Harbour
To mark the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, with the exclusive sponsorship of The Hong Kong Jockey Club, the Art Promotion Office and the Science Promotion Unit under the Leisure and Cultural Services Department organised "The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: Science in Art" exhibition as part of the "Art@Harbour" initiative. We invited a guest curator Alan Cheung and commissioned six groups of artists, including Chun-kit Cheuk, HIR Studio, Napp Studio & Architects, New Office Works, Studio RYTE and Whiteground as well as cross disciplinary artist Victor Wong to create nine sets of large-scale outdoor art installations in Tamar Park and the Central and Western District Promenade, blending art, science and technology, drawing on physics, engineering and mathematics. The installations had lighting effects that illuminated Victoria Harbour in a play of light and shadow. Juicyapp, our art tech partner, designed an application incorporating generative art. These innovative artworks encouraged the audience to engage and interact with them, experience art from a unique perspective, appreciate the wonders of nature, and recognize the significance of sustainability. We also commissioned young artists Brenda Hui, KK Leung and Oldgrand.ma to create three illusionistic floor graphics, and visual communication artist Sunny Wong to weave the artworks together to create a unique exhibition space. Visitors could meander through the park, embracing the surprises resulting from the fusion of art, science and technology.
During the exhibition, the Art Promotion Office and the Science Promotion Unit organised a series of online and offline extension activities, such as online guided tours, artist and scientist sharing sessions, and quizzes, to take the public on a fun and immersive learning journey exploring the realms of art and science.
